Failure to obtain this certification within 2 years of employment may subject the incumbent to adverse action.

You must be a current student with at least half time enrollment in an accredited college (including 4 year colleges/universities, community colleges and junior colleges), professional, technical, vocational and trade schools, advanced degree programs, or other qualifying educational institutions pursuing a qualifying degree or certificate.

You must complete your academic requirements and program service requirements to be eligible for placement into a permanent job. The 120-day period at the completion of program requirements cannot be used to complete any of the requirements.

Qualifications

Positions are open to current students pursuing a qualifying degree or certificate in an accredited high school, college (including 4-year colleges/universities, community colleges, and junior colleges); professional, technical, vocational, and trade school; advanced degree programs; or other qualifying educational institution on at least a half-time basis (as defined by the institution in which the student is enrolled). Short-term training programs (e.g., several two-week programs completed) are not considered an academic course of study.

The ideal candidate will be pursuing a degree or certificate in an academic program that is closely related to the duties of this position. The desired academic program should cover curriculum that concentrates on Business Administration, Public Administration, Organizational Behavior, Organizational Concepts, Accounting, Auditing or Finance. Typical programs that have this curriculum include programs such as Business Administration, Project Management and Resource Management. (Note: College or University must be accredited by one of the accrediting agencies or associations recognized by the Secretary, U.S. Department of Education. You must attach a copy of your transcript or proof of enrollment).

To qualify for a Pathways Internship as a GS-03, students must have completed one full academic year of post-high school study.

To qualify for a Pathways Internship as a GS-04, students must have completed two full academic years of post-high school study or have an associate's degree.

For qualification purposes, an academic year is computed as follows:

At the undergraduate level, successfully completed education that has not led to possession of a degree is credited based on its relationship to 120 semester hours or 180 quarter hours. For example, 30 semester hours or 45 quarter hours is comparable to 1 year of undergraduate education. Four years of progressive study or 120 semester hours meets the degree requirements. Additional credit cannot be given for duplicate course work.

For study at a business or technical school, 36 weeks of study (20 classroom hours per week) is comparable to 1 academic year above high school.

An academic year of graduate education is considered to be the number of credit hours that the school attended has determined to represent 1 academic year of full-time study. This determination is made based on normal course loads for a full year of study in the graduate program. If that information cannot be obtained from the school, 18 semester hours or 27 quarter hours should be considered as satisfying the 1 year of full-time study requirement. Part-time graduate education is creditable in accordance with its relationship to a year of full-time study at the school attended.

When academic credit is expressed in contract months, units, or other terms that differ from conventional semester or quarter hours, it is the responsibility of the applicant to provide an interpretation of such credits from the appropriate institution in order to equate them to the semester or quarter hours specified in the standard.

NOTE: If your college, vocational, trade, technical or high schools' definition of academic year differs from above, you must submit proof of this difference (e.g., copy of course catalog that defines an academic year). Absent this documentation, you will screened for academic qualifications based on the academic hours as defined in the bullets above.

You will be evaluated on the basis of your level of competency in the following areas:

Education

For this internship, you must be a current student majoring in either an accounting, auditing, or financial management program, or in a closely related field of study such as business administration, accounting, finance, resource management, project management or public administration.
